Do you take your lunch to work or a snack? I do, so as some of my friends. Where do you keep it? In a plastic or paper bag or maybe in a container? I used to carry my lunch in a plastic bag until one day, the day I bought my sewing machine. I thought of something cute, reusable and practical, something that would put a smile on my face when it was time to eat my lunch. This is how I came up with the idea of making a drawstring bento bag. I like anything Japanese, all sorts of cute little things and these bento bags were just perfect. They are very quick and easy to make and do not require any special sewing skills.
